Recently described as an "old school trail, now defunct and dilapitaded," the SRAM Canadian Open Enduro presented by Specialized has brought this “Sleeping Beauty” back to life. Through the handiwork of Seb Kemp, Jerome David and Trail Network Solutions, Crazy Train has been refurbished, rerouted and will have riders “going off the rails.”

      Great conditions all way down. Some parts are getting loose, but not too bad.

      Up to the first chute it's still a bit boggy. Dry afterwards, running well!

      First feature is a little wet, but the dirt everywhere else is prime after the recent rain.

       Awesome Trail! Has a bit of everything definitely the most Gnarly Trail on Blackcomb but it still has decent Flow.

       Really fun, maybe a single black. Preferable over beaten up Microclimate
